    Yeah, some fabrication will be happening tomorrow. All the parts are now in, and pre-assembly has started. We should get some welding done Monday.

    Hey Guys, I need to confirm this order and get the webbing in asap. I just need to know who does not want the 4 bar webbing, in favour of the weave type at this stage, thanks.

    Including those of us who've already rung in? Or is that for the folks who still don't have a preference on the list?

    Hello BFUK, Gino, Mojo-Fett,

    Is it still optional to order one of these harnesses? Iam in need of an ESB one.. I wonder if my Bobamaker backplate and BFUK jetpack will fit onto this harness?
    Please confirm this and let me know it these are still available ;-)

    Hey guys.......getting exciting now

    OK, so I thought I would give you all an update and show any one interested some of the process needed to capture the small details, most of which could be done far easier, but to get that accurate look they need to be done. It goes some way to explain why this project is taking so long.....originally started late last year. Some of these photos have been posted previously, but you get a better idea of the process now.



    The V1 harness drawing is compared to the newly released photo of the Supertrooper/Boba Fett Harness. New dimensions are established and full detailed professional drawings are created for the engineers to work to.

    Raw materials are identified as per the drawings and ordered.


    The developed lengths are then cut, and the brace/strap parts are ordered from the sheet metal workers.



    The formers are then machined to the correct dimensions to allow the material to be bent. A jig is also machined to help with all stages of working with the harness rig, including registration, finished size and strap positions.



    The material is then bent to the correct shape and checked on the prepared jig.



    When manufactured all the parts are test fitted to check they fit properly and the correct radius have been achieved.



    The frames are then drilled on a CNC machine.



    After drilling the burs are removed and the straps are added and pressed into the final position using a bespoke pressing tool, before spot welding takes place.





    Once they have been welded they have the "dimple" added to secure the welded strap in place, again, the now modified gig is used to obtain the correct position.



    Once the straps are welded and secured in place, any extra length is removed from the frame.....I did not get a photo of this today, will add it later.

    .....and this is where we are currently, the lower strap and rings are located in place and need welding. Then the support bar fixings will be added and finally the support bar itself.



    Not long now

    Yes, the bottom hooks are part of the rig, I am sure you have the top hooks that work with this set up already

    .......yes, we have some updates guys, and a good one too.

    So, here are the final stages of the fabrication. The frame is thread rolled, so the support bar can be attached


    Then the screws are machined, as the correct dome head screws are not available any more, here you can see the "slot" being cut.


    Ta-dah, a screw.


    And here is the first harness sewn together to check webbing lengths. This one is Supertrooper style. Just looking to fine tune the white/grey webbing now. All the harness are now fabricated and ready to be sewn and the webbing is on hand.


    Over the next day or so PM's should be going out to all concerned to obtain sizing etc. We are on the final leg now, these can be ready in a matter of days.

    Rob.

    Hope ya like the update guys....
    Ok, just to echo what Rob said we are at the final hurdle, so it's time to get some final dimensions from each buyer. If you could PM me or Rob (or email) with your sizes then these can be finished off and out the door to you all... (once paid of course) lol

    Thank you for all your patience on this...

    Yeah, as Gav says, T shirt size gives enough info, they are still pretty adjustable still.
